The Realme GT 5 Pro, a highly anticipated flagship powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, is set to debut this November. While the exact launch date remains a mystery, the company has been actively revealing key features of the GT 5 Pro. In a recent update, Realme announced that the phone will be equipped with a Sony Lytia camera sensor, indicating a significant focus on photographic capabilities.
There are speculations that the Realme GT 5 Pro and the OnePlus 12 will share the same primary camera. The OnePlus 12 is confirmed to have a LYT-808 50-megapixel primary camera. Although the specific model of the Lytia sensor in the GT 5 Pro has not been disclosed, it's speculated to be on par with the OnePlus offering.
Despite possibly having the same primary camera sensor as the OnePlus 12, the GT 5 Pro is expected to differ in other camera aspects. The OnePlus 12 is anticipated to include an IMX581 48-megapixel ultra-wide lens and an OmniVision OV64B 64-megapixel periscope telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. In contrast, the GT 5 Pro is likely to feature an IMX355 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and an IMX890 50-megapixel periscope telephoto camera with 2.7x optical zoom. Both smartphones are expected to have a 32-megapixel front-facing camera.

The GT 5 Pro is also rumored to boast impressive specifications, including a 6.78-inch curved-edge OLED 1.5K display with a 144Hz refresh rate, up to 16 GB of LPDDR5x RAM, and up to 1 TB of UFS 4.0 storage. It is expected to be one of the first phones to run on Realme UI 5-based Android 14 and to feature one of the largest heat dissipation units in its class. Additionally, the phone is likely to be equipped with a 5,400mAh battery, supporting both 100W wired and 50W wireless charging.
With several major smartphone launches scheduled for November 23, including the Honor 100 series, the Oppo Reno 11 lineup, and the Red Magic 9 Pro series, it is plausible that the Realme GT 5 Pro might be announced shortly after these releases, potentially in the last week of November.
